I've been wanting to make a little run of "Honest Girls" my Modern Girls but with more... er... direct sentiments. My personality leans that way and sometimes a saying like,
"Nobody is impressed with how good your excuses are."
resonates with me, personally, a little more than,
" She flew with her own wings."
Which just makes me scratch my head and wonder how this winged woman would fly with someone else's in the first place.
" It was just dreadful darling, the maid's wings were in the shop and I had to fly with my own wings."
I know - it's a metaphor but still.
